Notes and Editorial Reviews

Korngold’s Piano Trio, Op 1 was his first published work, completed before he had even reached thirteen years of age. Premièred by leading instrumental luminaries in Vienna, it announced a precocious and major talent in its handling of up-to-date harmonies and musical form. Composed a decade earlier, Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht was similarly innovative in its use of tonality. Originally scored for string sextet, it proved so popular that the composer authorised his former pupil, the pianist Eduard Steuermann, to make the present transcription for piano trio.
